recording of An Antarctic Mystery or The Sphinx of the Ice Fields by Jules Verne read by Esther.
Edgar Allan Poe’s telling of Arthur Pym’s narrative is shown to be true as events come together that bring out clues that help Captain Len Guy trace the fate of his brother’s ship the Jane; the very ship that Arthur Pym was on board at the time of his disappearance. Through the efforts of Mr. Joerling, the crew of the Halbrane is enticed to make the trip to Antarctica to search for any survivors of the Jane. Summary from Wikipedia

I love this book and the reading. It is so amazing how Verne interlaces Poe's original story into his own---and expands it. Very clever. You really have to listen carefully to get all the details, but it is well worth it. I give this book---and the reader---ten stars.
